Thoroughly enjoyed this piece of art movie

Well this movie must be seen by all ages around the world however, to me there is great injustice. Movie ends with struggling women around the world however, i clearly found out the real struggle was done only by the "untouchables" Indian woman as by comparison both Italian and Canadian women are living already a wonderful life in comparison to Indian woman. I wish I could speak to director/producer of this movie and highlight that in which was he or she thinks that Italian and Canadian women are going through real struggle in their lives except the point that hairs of such poor women in India are used as business thus helping Italian woman? Considering this point I highly feel there is injustice in the movie however, yet I enjoyed watching this movie. There was a constant flow in the movie.

Shameless promotion of neo-colonialism and loss of identity

This initially beautiful mosaic-film tells the story of three courageous women.

A poor Indian woman (untouchable) flees with her daughter by train tot better conditions. A young Italian woman finds herself in trouble when her family-business- a wig-workshop - threatens to collapse. A Canadian woman must choose between her successful but life-sucking career and taking her cancer and herself as a person seriously

With fantastic acting and beautiful cinematography the film expands on the theme of the individual who wants to develop itself against religious norms, cultural values and social pressure.

But then the film goes completely off the rails.

The Indian woman appears to be on her way to a temple where she and her daughter offer their hair, in a misplaced ritual, to the gods as penance (while in fact they have been destroyed by a religious - but in fact financial - system of exploitation). Her misplaced 'sacrifice' is sent in large container ships all over the world.

The young Italian woman receives this hair because she has decided to internationalize her local family business. She will now make wigs with this 'contaminated' product and not local hair. The cheaper wigs are again sent all over the world and end up in Canada, among others. In exclusive wig-shops.

The Canadian woman - who 'fixed' her cancer with chemo and didn't do anything about her 'slave-of-the-system' life - buys a wig (made with the hair of the Indian women, as the metaphor of international trade concludes it's sad arc) in an expensive store in Montreal.

So.... What obviously is meant as the hopeful consequence of internationalism - shown in the journey of hair and three courageous women - turns out to be the horrible exposé of ruthless neo-colonialism, loss of local identity and obedience to a system that destroys our humanity. We all know who work in this gigantic chain of international trade-traffic, don't we?

The last image is terrible: disfigured with a poor Indian woman's wig, the Canadian woman returns to the hustle and bustle of her slave-career.

Shame on the producers and artists of this initially beautiful story.

Imotionaly rich

First hour of movie was really touching. It felt little slow (though its a slow movie) at times after that. However overall it was really good. I loved it. This gave me almost similar feeling as of 21 grams. I was overwhelmed.

I am from India, and I really wonder how they shoot the Indian part so realistically. Most of the Indian movies cant do that justification. The village, people, things, fields etc. Were very realistic.

However there were few issues/gaps. Indian woman wanted to give better life and education to her child, but by risking everything, what she actually did towards it, how exactly she worked towards her aim, was not very clear. Canadian woman, what was her instance on her career aspirations vs her children, was also not very clear.
